PREFACE. 


These  poems  were  written  under  the  pressure  of 
the  events  they  indicate,  after  a  residence  in  Italy 
of  so  many  years,  that  the  present  triumph  of  great 
principles  is  heightened  to  the  writer's  feelings  by 
the  disastrous  issue  of  the  last  movement,  witnessed 
from  "  Casa  Guidi  Windows  "  in  1849.  Yet,  if  the 
verses  should  appear  to  English  readers  too  pun- 
gently  rendered  to  admit  of  a  patriotic  respect  to 
the  English  sense  of  things,  I  will  not  excuse 
myself  on  such  grounds,  nor  on  the  ground  of  my 
attachment  to  the  Italian  people,  and  my  admiration 
of  their  heroic  constancy  and  union.  What  I  have 
written  has  simply  been  written  because  I  love  truth 
and  justice  quancl  meme, — "  more  than  Plato  "  and 
Plato's  country,  more  than  Dante  and  Dante's 
country,  more  even  than  Shakespeare  and  Shake- 
speare's country. 


VI  PREFACE. 

And   if  patriotism   means   the    flattery   of   one's 
nation  in  every  case,  then  the  patriot,   take  it  as 
you  please,  is  merely  a  courtier ;  which  I  am  not, 
though  I  have  written  "  Napoleon  III.  in  Italy." 
It  is  time  to  limit  the  significance  of  certain  terms, 
or   to    enlarge   the    significance   of    certain   things. 
Nationality   is    excellent    in    its    place ;     and   the 
instinct  of  self-love   is  the   root  of  a  man,  which 
will  develope  into  sacrificial  virtues.     But  all  the 
virtues  are  means  and  uses  ;  and,  if  we  hinder  their 
tendency  to  growth  and  expansion,  we  "both  destroy 
them  as  virtues,  and  degrade  them  to  that  rankest 
species  of  corruption  reserved  for  the  most  noble 
organisations.     For  instance, — non-intervention   in 
the  affairs  of  neighbouring  states  is  a  high  political 
virtue ;  but  non-intervention  does  not  mean,  passing 
by  on  the  other   side   when   your   neighbour   falls 
among  thieves, — or  Phariseeism  would  recover  it  from 
Christianity.     Freedom  itself  is  virtue,   as  well  as 
privilege ;  but  freedom  of  the  seas  does  not  mean 
piracy,  nor  freedom  of  the  land,   brigandage ;  nor 
freedom  of  the  senate,  freedom  to  cudgel  a  dissident 
member,   nor   freedom   of    the   press,    freedom   to 
calumniate   and  lie.     So,  if  patriotism  be  a  virtue 


PREFACE.  Vll 

indeed,  it  cannot  mean  an  exclusive  devotion  to 
one's  country's  interests, — for  that  is  only  another 
form  of  devotion  to  personal  interests,  family 
interests,  or  provincial  interests,  all  of  which,  if 
not  driven  past  themselves,  are  vulgar  and  immoral 
objects.  Let  us  put  away  the  little  Pedlingtonism 
unworthy  of  a  great  nation,  and  too  prevalent 
among  us.  If  the  man  who  does  not  look  beyond 
this  natural  life  is  of  a  somewhat  narrow  order, 
what  must  be  the  man  who  does  not  look  bej-ond 
his  own  frontier  or  his  own  sea  ? 

I  confess  that  I  dream  of  the  clay  when  an 
Enolish  statesman  shall  arise  with  a  heart  too 
large  for  England,  having  courage  in  the  face  of 
his  countrymen  to  assert  of  some  suggested  policy, 
— "  This  is  good  for  your  trade  :  this  is  neces- 
sary for  your  domination ;  but  it  will  vex  a  people 
hard  by;  it  will  hurt  a  people  farther  off ;  it  will 
profit  nothing  to  the  general  humanity  :  therefore, 
away  with  it ! — it  is  not  for  you  or  for  me." 
When  a  British  minister  dares  speak  so,  and 
when  a  British  public  applauds  him  speaking, 
then   shall   the    nation    be    so    glorious,   that    her 


Vlll  PREFACE. 

praise,  instead  of  exploding  from  within,  from  loud 
civic  mouths,  shall  come  to  her  from  without,  as 
all  worthy  praise  must,  from  the  alliances  she  has 
fostered,  and  from  the  populations  she  has  saved. 

And  poets  who  write  of  the  events  of  that  time, 
shall  not  need  to  justify  themselves  in  prefaces,  for 
ever  so  little  jarring  of  the  national  sentiment, 
imputable  to  their  rhymes.

NAPOLEON  III  IN  ITALY. 


i. 


Emperor,  Emperor ! 
From  tlie  centre  to  the  shore, 
From  the  Seine  back  to  the  Rhine, 
Stood  eight  millions  up  and  swore 
By  their  manhood's  right  divine 

So  to  elect  and  legislate, 
This  man  should  renew  the  line 
Broken  in  a  strain  of  fate 
And  leagued  kings  at  Waterloo, 
When  the  people's  hands  let  go. 

Emperor 

Evermore. 


NAPOLEON    III    IN    ITALY. 

II. 

With  a  universal  shout 
They  took  the  old  regalia  out 
From  an  open  grave  that  day ; 
From  a  grave  that  would  not  close, 
Where  the  first  N" apoleon  lay 

Expectant,  in  repose, 
As  still  as  Merlin,  with  his  conquering  face 
Turned  up  in  its  unquenchable  appeal 
To  men  and  heroes  of  the  advancing  race, — 

Prepared  to  set  the  seal 
Of  what  has  been  on  what  shall  be. 
Emperor 
Evermore. 

in. 

The  thinkers  stood  aside 

To  let  the  nation  act. 
Some  hated  the  new-constituted  fact 
Of  empire,  as  pride  treading  on  their  pride. 
Some  quailed,  lest  what  was  poisonous  in  the  past 
Should  graft  itself  in  that  Druidic  bough 
On  this  green  now. 

Some  cursed,  because  at  last 


NAPOLEON    III    IN    ITALY.  O 

The  open  heavens  to  which  they  had  look'd  in  vain 
For  many  a  golden  fall  of  marvellous  rain 

Were  closed  in  brass  ;  and  some 
Wept  on  because  a  gone  thing  could  not  come  ; 
And  some  were  silent,  doubting  all  things  for 

That  popular  conviction, — evermore 

Emperor. 

IV. 

That  day  I  did  not  hate 

Nor  doubt,  nor  quail  nor  curse. 

I,  reverencing  the  people,  did  not  bate 

My  reverence  of  their  deed  and  oracle, 

Nor  vainly  prate 

Of  better  and  of  worse 
Against  the  great  conclusion  of  their  will. 

And  yet,  0  voice  and  verse, 
Which  God  set  in  me  to  acclaim  and  sing 
Conviction,  exaltation,  aspiration, 
We  gave  no  music  to  the  patent  thing, 
Nor  spared  a  holy  rhythm  to  throb  and  swim 

About  the  name  of  him 
Translated  to  the  sphere  of  domination 

By  democratic  passion  ! 

B  2 


NAPOLEON    III    IN    ITALY. 

I  was  not  used,  at  least, 
Nor  can  be,  now  or  then, 
To  stroke  the  ermine  beast 
On  any  kind  of  throne, 
(Though  builded  by  a  nation  for  its  own), 
And  swell  the  surging  choir  for  kings  of  men- 
'  Emperor 
Evermore.' 


v. 


But  now,  Napoleon,  now 
That,  leaving  far  behind  the  purple  throng 

Of  vulgar  monarchs,  thou 

Tread'st  higher  in  thy  deed 

Than  stair  of  throne  can  lead, 

To  help  in  the  hour  of  wrong 
The  broken  hearts  of  nations  to  be  strong, — 

JSTow,  lifted  as  thou  art 

To  the  level  of  pure  song, 
We  stand  to  meet  thee  on  these  Alpine  snows  ! 
And  while  the  palpitating  peaks  break  out 
Ecstatic  from  somnambular  repose 
With  answers  to  the  presence  and  the  shout, 


NAPOLEON    III    IN   ITALY.  O 

We,  poets  of  the  people,  who  take  part 
With,  elemental  justice,  natural  right, 

Join  in  our  echoes  also,  nor  refrain. 
We  meet  thee,  0  Napoleon,  at  this  height 
At  last,  and  find  thee  great  enough  to  praise. 
Receive  the  poet's  chrism,  which  smells  heyond 

The  priest's,  and  pass  thy.  ways  ; — 
An  English  poet  warns  thee  to  maintain 
God's  word,  not  England's  : — let  His  truth  he  true 
And  all  men  liars  !  with  His  truth  respond 
To  all  men's  lie.     Exalt  the  sword  and  smite 
On  that  long  anvil  of  the  Apennine 
Where  Austria  forged  the  Italian  chain  in  view 
Of  seven  consenting  nations,  sparks  of  fine 

Admonitory  light, 
Till  men's  eyes  wink  before  convictions  new. 
Flash  in  God's  justice  to  the  world's  amaze, 
Sublime  Deliverer  ! — after  many  days 
Found  worthy  of  the  deed  thou  art  come  to  do — 
Emperor 
Evermore. 


VI. 


But  Italy,  my  Italy, 
Can  it  last,  this  gleam  ? 


6  NAPOLEON    III    IN    ITALY. 

Can  she  live  and  be  strong, 

Or  is  it  another  dream 

Like  the  rest  we  have  dreamed  so  long  ? 

And  shall  it,  must  it  be, 
That  after  the  battle-cloud  has  broken 
She  will  die  off  again 
Like  the  rain, 
Or  like  a  poet's  song 
Sung  of  her,  sad  at  the  end 
Because  her  name  is  Italy, — 
Die  and  count  no  friend  ? 
Is  it  true, — may  it  be  spoken, — 
That  she  who  has  lain  so  still, 
With  a  wound  in  her  breast, 
And  a  flower  in  her  hand, 
And  a  grave-stone  under  her  head. 
While  every  nation  at  will 
Beside  her  has  dared  to  stand 
And  flout  her  with  pity  and  scorn? 
Saying,  '  She  is  at  rest, 
She  is  fair,  she  is  dead, 
And,  leaving  room  in  her  stead 
To  Us  who  are  later  born, 
This  is  certainly  best  I ' 


NAPOLEON    III    IN   ITALY. 

Saying,  '  Alas,  she  is  fair, 

Very  fair,  but  dead, 

And  so  we  have  room  for  the  race.' 

— Can  it  be  true,  be  true, 

That  she  lives  anew  ? 

That  she  rises  up  at  the  shout  of  her  sons, 

At  the  trumpet  of  France, 

And  lives  anew  ? — is  it  true 

That  she  has  not  moved  in  a  trance, 

As  in  Forty- eight  ? 

When  her  eyes  were  troubled  with  blood 

Till  she  knew  not  friend  from  foe, 

Till  her  hand  was  caught  in  a  strait 

Of  her  cerement  and  baffled  so 

From  doing  the  deed  she  would  ; 

And  her  weak  foot  stumbled  across 

The  grave  of  a  king, 

And  down  she  dropt  at  heavy  loss, 

And  we  gloomily  covered  her  face  and  said, 

'  We  have  dreamed  the  thing  ; 

She  is  not  alive,  but  dead.' 


NAPOLEON    III    IN    ITALY. 


VII. 


Now,  shall  we  say 

Our  Italy  lives  indeed  ? 

And  if  it  were  not  for  the  beat  and  bray 

Of  drum  and  trump  of  martial  men, 

Should  we  feel  the  underground  heave  and  strain, 

Where  heroes  left  their  dust  as  a  seed 

Sure  to  emerge  one  day  ? 
And  if  it  were  not  for  the  rhythmic  march 
Of  France  and  Piedmont's  double  hosts, 

Should  we  hear  the  ghosts 
Thrill  through  ruined  aisle  and  arch, 
Throb  along  the  frescoed  wall, 
Whisper  an  oath  by  that  divine 
They  left  in  picture,  book,  and  stone, 
That  Italy  is  not  dead  at  all  ? 
Ay,  if  it  were  not  for  the  tears  in  our  eyes, 
These  tears  of  a  sudden  passionate  joy, 

Should  we  see  her  arise 
From  the  place  where  the  wicked  are  overthrown, 

Italy,  Italy  ?  loosed  at  length 

From  the  tyrants  thrall, 
Pale  and  calm  in  her  strength  ? 
Pale  as  the  silver  cross  of  Savoy 


NAPOLEON    III    IN   ITALY. 

When  the  hand  that  bears  the  flag  is  brave, 
And  not  a  breath  is  stirring,  save 

What  is  blown 
Over  the  war-trump's  lip  of  brass, 
Ere  Garibaldi  forces  the  pass  ! 


VIII. 


Ay,  it  is  so,  even  so. 

Ay,  and  it  shall  be  so. 
Each  broken  stone  that  long  ago 
She  flung  behind  her  as  she  went 
In  discouragement  and  bewilderment 
Through  the  cairns  of  Time,  and  missed  her  way 

Between  to-day  and  yesterday, 

Up  springs  a  living  man. 
And  each  man  stands  with  his  face  in  the  light 

Of  his  own  drawn  sword, 
Ready  to  do  what  a  hero  can. 
Wall  to  sap,  or  river  to  ford, 
Cannon  to  front,  or  foe  to  pursue, 
Still  ready  to  do,  and  sworn  to  be  true, 

As  a  man  and  a  patriot  can. 
Piedmontese,  Neapolitan, 


10  NAPOLEON    III    IN    ITALY. 

Lombard,  Tuscan,  Homagnole, 

Each  man's  body  having  a  soul, — 

Count  how  many  they  stand, 

All  of  them  sons  of  the  land, 

Every  live  man  there 

Allied  to  a  dead  man  below, 

And  the  deadest  with  blood  to  spare 

To  quicken  a  living  hand 

In  case  it  should  ever  be  slow. 

Count  how  many  they  come 

To  the  beat  of  Piedmont's  drum, 

"With  faces  keener  and  grayer 

Than  swords  of  the  Austrian  slayer, 

All  set  against  the  foe. 

'  Emperor 

Evermore.' 


IX. 


Out  of  the  dust,  where  they  ground  them, 
Out  of  the  holes,  where  thev  do^sred  them, 
Out  of  the  hulks,  where  they  wound  them 
In  iron,  tortured  and  flogged  them  ; 
Out  of  the  streets,  where  they  chased  them, 


NAPOLEON    III    IN    ITALY.  11 

Taxed  them  and  then  bayonetted  them, — 
Out  of  the  homes,  where  they  spied  on  them, 
(Using  their  daughters  and  wives), 
Out  of  the  church,  where  they  fretted  them, 
Rotted  their  souls  and  debased  them, 
Trained  them  to  answer  with  knives, 
Then  cursed  them  all  at  their  prayers  ! — 
Out  of  cold  lands,  not  theirs, 
Where  they  exiled  them,  starved  them,  lied  on  them ; 
Back  they  come  like  a  wind,  in  vain 
Cramped  up  in  the  hills,  that  roars  its  road 
The  stronger  into  the  open  plain ; 
Or  like  a  fire  that  burns  the  hotter 
And  longer  for  the  crust  of  cinder, 
Serving  better  the  ends  of  the  potter  ; 
Or  like  a  restrained  word  of  God, 
Fulfilling  itself  by  what  seems  to  hinder. 
'  Emperor 
Evermore.' 


Shout  for  France  and  Savoy  ! 
Shout  for  the  helper  and  doer. 


12 


NAPOLEON    III    IN    ITALY. 

Shout  for  the  good  sword's  ring, 
Shout  for  the  thought  still  truer. 
Shout  for  the  spirits  at  large 
Who  passed  for  the  dead  this  spring, 
Whose  living  glory  is  sure. 
Shout  for  France  and  Savoy  ! 
Shout  for  the  council  and  charge  ! 
Shout  for  the  head  of  Cavour  ; 
And  shout  for  the  heart  of  a  King 
That's  great  with  a  nation's  joy. 
Shout  for  France  and  Savoy  ! 


XI. 


Take  up  the  child,  Macmahon,  though 

Thy  hand  be  red 

From  Magenta's  dead, 

And  riding  on,  in  front  of  the  troop, 

In  the  dust  of  the  whirlwind  of  war 
Through  the  gate  of  the  city  of  Milan,  stoop 
And  take  up  the  child  to  thy  saddle-bow, 
Nor  fear  the  touch  as  soft  as  a  flower 

Of  his  smile  as  clear  as  a  star ! 
Thou  hast  a  right  to  the  child,  we  say, 


NAPOLEON    III    IN    ITALY.  13 

Since  the  women  are  weeping  for  joy  as  those 
Who,  by  thy  help  and  from  this  day, 

Shall  be  happy  mothers  indeed. 
They  are  raining  flowers  from  terrace  and  roof  : 

Take  up  the  flower  in  the  child. 
While  the  shout  goes  up  of  a  nation  freed 

And  heroically  self-reconciled, 
Till  the  snow  on  that  peaked  Alp  aloof 
Starts,  as  feeling  God's  finger  anew, 
And  all  those  cold  white  marble  fires 
Of  mounting  saints  on  the  Duomo-spires 

Flicker  against  the  Blue. 
'  Emperor 
Evermore.' 


XII. 


Ay,  it  is  He, 
Who  rides  at  the  King's  right  hand  ! 
Leave  room  to  his  horse  and  draw  to  the  side, 
Isor  press  too  near  in  the  ecstacy 
Of  a  newly  delivered  impassioned  land  : 
He  is  moved,  you  see, 

He  who  has  done  it  all. 


14  NAPOLEON    III   IN    ITALY. 

They  call  it  a  cold  stern  face ; 

But  this  is  Italy 
Who  rises  up  to  her  place ! — 
For  this  he  fought  in  his  youth, 
Of  this  he  dreamed  in  the  past ; 
The  lines  of  the  resolute  mouth 
Tremble  a  little  at  last. 
Cry,  he  has  done  it  all ! 

'  Emperor 

Evermore/ 


xnr. 


It  is  not  strange  that  he  did  it, 
Though  the  deed  may  seem  to  strain 
To  the  wonderful,  unpermitted, 
For  such  as  lead  and  reign. 
But  he  is  strange,  this  man  : 
The  people's  instinct  found  him 
(A  wind  in  the  dark  that  ran 
Through  a  chink  where  was  no  door), 
And  elected  him  and  crowned  him 

Emperor 

Evermore. 


NAPOLEON    III    IN    ITALY.  15 


XIV. 


Autocrat  ?  let  them  scoff, 

Who  fail  to  comprehend 
That  a  ruler  incarnate  of 

The  people,  must  transcend 
All  common  king-born  kings. 
These  subterranean  springs 
A  sudden  outlet  winning, 
Have  special  virtues  to  spend. 
The  people's  blood  runs  through  him, 
Dilates  from  head  to  foot, 
Creates  him  absolute, 
And  from  this  great  beginning 
Evokes  a  greater  end 
To  justify  and  renew  him — 
Emperor 
Evermore. 

XV. 

What !  did  any  maintain 
That  God  or  the  people  (think !) 
Could  make  a  marvel  in  vain  ? — 
Out  of  the  water- jar  there, 
Draw  wine  that  none  could  drink  ? 


16  NAPOLEON    III    IN    ITALY. 

Is  this  a  man  like  the  rest, 

This  miracle,  made  unaware 

By  a  rapture  of  popular  air, 

And  caught  to  the  place  that  was  best  ? 

You  think  he  could  barter  and  cheat 

As  vulgar  diplomates  use, 

With  the  people's  heart  in  his  breast  ? 

Prate  a  lie  into  shape 

Lest  truth  should  cumber  the  road  ; 

Play  at  the  fast  and  loose 

Till  the  world  is  strangled  with  tape  ; 

Maim  the  soul's  complete 

To  fit  the  hole  of  a  toad  ; 

And  filch  the  dogman's  meat 

To  feed  the  offspring  of  God  ? 


XVI. 


Nay,  but  he,  this  wonder, 
He  cannot  palter  nor  prate, 
Though  many  around  him  and  under, 
With  intellects  trained  to  the  curve, 
Distrust  him  in  spirit  and  nerve 
Because  his  meaning  is  straight. 


NAPOLEON    III    IN    ITALY. 


17 


Measure  him  ere  lie  depart 
"With  those  who  have  governed  and  led ; 
Larger  so  much  by  the  heart, 
Larger  so  much  by  the  head. 

Emperor 

Evermore. 


xvir. 


He  holds  that,  consenting  or  dissident, 
Nations  must  move  with  the  time  ; 
Assumes  that  crime  with  a  precedent 

Doubles  the  guilt  of  the  crime  ; 
— Denies  that  a  slaver's  bond, 

Or  a  treaty  signed  by  knaves, 
(Quorum  magna  pars  and  beyond 
Was  one  of  an  honest  name) 
Gives  an  inexpugnable  claim 
To  abolishing  men  into  slaves. 
Emperor 
Evermore. 


XVIII. 


He  will  not  swasher  nor  boast 


o»v 


Of  his  country's  meeds,  in  a  tone 


18  NAPOLEON    III    IN    ITALY. 

Missuiting  a  great  man  most 

If  such  should  speak  of  his  own ; 
Nor  will  he  act,  on  her  side, 

From  motives  baser,  indeed, 
Than  a  man  of  a  noble  pride 

Can  avow  for  himself  at  need ; 
Never,  for  lucre  or  laurels, 

Or  custom,  though  such  should  be  rife, 
Adapting  the  smaller  morals 

To  measure  the  larger  life. 
He,  though  the  merchants  persuade, 

And  the  soldiers  are  eager  for  strife, 
Finds  not  his  country  in  quarrels 

Only  to  find  her  in  trade, — 
While  still  he  accords  her  such  honor 

As  never  to  flinch  for  her  sake 
Where  men  put  service  upon  her, 

Found  heavy  to  undertake 
And  scarcely  like  to  be  paid : 

Believing  a  nation  may  act 

Unselfishly — shiver  a  lance 
(As  the  least  of  her  sons  may,  in  fact) 

And  not  for  a  cause  of  finance. 
Emperor 
Evermore.

Great  is  he, 
Who  uses  his  greatness  for  all. 
His  name  shall  stand  perpetually 

As  a  name  to  applaud  and  cherish, 
Not  only  within  the  civic  wall 
For  the  loval,  but  also  without 
For  the  generous  and  free. 
Just  is  he, 
Who  is  just  for  the  popular  due 

As  well  as  the  private  debt. 
The  praise  of  nations  ready  to  perish 
Fall  on  him, — crown  him  in  view 
Of  tyrants  caught  in  the  net, 
And  statesmen  dizzy  with  fear  and  doubt ! 
And  though,  because  they  are  many, 

And  he  is  merely  one, 
And  nations  selfish  and  cruel 
Heap  up  the  inquisitor's  fuel 
To  kill  the  body  of  high  intents, 
And  burn  great  deeds  from  their  place, 
Till  this,  the  greatest  of  any, 
May  seem  imperfectly  done  ; 

Courage,  whoever  circumvents ! 

o  2 


20  NAPOLEON    III    IN    ITALY. 

Courage,  courage,  whoever  is  base  ! 

The  soul  of  a  high  intent,  be  it  known, 

Can  die  no  more  than  any  soul 

Which  God  keeps  by  him  under  the  throne 

And  this,  at  whatever  interim, 

Shall  live,  and  be  consummated 

Into  the  being  of  deeds  made  whole. 

Courage,  courage  !  happy  is  he, 

Of  whom  (himself  among  the  dead 

And  silent),  this  word  shall  be  said  ; 

— That  he  might  have  had  the  world  with  him, 

But  chose  to  side  with  suffering  men, 

And  had  the  world  against  him  when 

He  came  to  deliver  Italy. 

Emperor 

Evermore.

THE  DANCE. 


i. 


You  remember  down  at  Florence  onr  Cascine, 

Where  the  people  on  the  feast-days  walk  and  drive, 

And,  through  the  trees,  long-drawn  in  many  a  green 
way, 
O'er-roofing  hum  and  murmur  like  a  hive, 
The  river  and  the  mountains  look  alive  ? 


IL 


You  remember  the  piazzone  there,  the  stand-place 
Of  carriages  a-brim  with  Florence  B  eauties, 

"Who  lean  and  melt  to  music  as  the  band  plays, 
Or  smile  and  chat  with  some  one  who  a-foot  is, 
Or  on  horseback,  in  observance  of  male  duties  ? 


22 


THE    DANCE. 


III. 


*Tis  so  pretty,  in  the  afternoons  of  summer, 
So  many  gracious  faces  brought  together  ! 

Call  it  rout,  or  call  it  concert,  they  have  come  here, 
In  the  floating  of  the  fan  and  of  the  feather, 
To  reciprocate  with  beauty  the  fine  weather. 


IV. 


While  the  flower-girls  offer  nosegays  (because  they  too 
Go  with  other  sweets)  at  every  carriage-door ; 

Here,  by  shake  of  a  white  finger,  signed  away  to 
Some  next  buyer,  who  sits  buying  score  on  score, 
Piling  roses  upon  roses  evermore. 


v. 


And  last  season,  when  the  French  camp  had  its  station 
In  the  meadow-ground,  things  quickened  and  grew 
gayer 

Through  the  mingling  of  the  liberating  nation 

With  this  people  ;  groups  of  Frenchmen  everywhere, 
Strolling,  gazing,  judging  lightly  .  .  '  who  was  fair/ 


THE    DANCE.  23 


VI. 


Then  the  noblest  lady  present  took  upon  her 
To  speak  nobly  from  her  carriage  for  the  rest ; 

'  Pray  these  officers  from  France  to  do  us  honour 
By  dancing  with  us  straightway/ — The  request 
Was  gravely  apprehended  as  addressed. 


VII. 


And  the  men  of  France  bareheaded,  bowing  lowly, 
Led  out  each  a  proud  signora  to  the  space 

Which  the  startled  crowd  had  rounded  for  them- 
slowly, 
Just  a  touch  of  still  emotion  in  his  face, 
Not  presuming,  through  the  symbol,  on  the  grace. 


VIII. 


There  was  silence  in  the  people  :  some  lips  trembled, 
But  none  jested.     Broke  the  music,  at  a  glance  : 

And  the  daughters  of  our  princes,  thus  assembled, 
Stepped  the  measure  with  the  gallant  sons  of  France. 
Hush !  it  might  have  been  a  Mass,  and  not  a  dance. 


24  THE    DANCE. 


IX. 


And  they  danced  there  till  the  blue  that  overskied  us 
Swooned  with  passion,  though  the  footing  seemed 
sedate ; 

And  the  mountains,  heaving  mighty  hearts  beside  us, 
Sighed  a  rapture  in  a  shadow,  to  dilate, 
And  touch  the  holy  stone  where  Dante  sate. 


X. 


Then  the  sons  of  France  bareheaded,  lowly  bowing, 
Led  the  ladies  back  where  kinsmen  of  the  south 
Stood,  received  them ; — till,  with  burst  of  overflowing 
Feeling  .  .  .  husbands,    brothers,   Florence's    male 

youth, 
Turned,  and  kissed  the  martial  strangers  mouth  to 
mouth. 


XI. 


And  a  cry  went  up,  a  cry  from  all  that  people  ! 

— You  have  heard  a  people  cheering,  you  suppose, 
For   the  Member,    mayor  .  .  with   chorus    from   the 
steeple  ? 


THE    DANCE.  25 

This  was  different :  scarce  as  loud  perhaps,  (who 

knows  ?) 
For  we  saw  wet  eyes  around  us  ere  the  close. 

XII. 

And  we  felt  as  if  a  nation,  too  long  borne  in 

By  hard  wrongers,  comprehending  in  such  attitude 

That  God  had  spoken  somewhere  since  the  morning, 
That  men  were  somehow  brothers,  by  no  platitude, 
Cried  exultant  in  great  wonder  and  free  gratitude. 


26 


A  TALE  OF  VILLAFRANCA. 


TOLD  IN  TUSCANY. 


I. 


My  little  son,  my  Florentine, 
Sit  down  beside  my  knee, 

And  I  will  tell  you  why  the  sign 
Of  joy  which  flushed  our  Italy, 

Has  faded  since  but  yesternight ; 

And  why  your  Florence  of  delight 
Is  mourning  as  you  see. 


n. 


A  great  man  (who  was  crowned  one  day) 

Imagined  a  great  Deed : 
He  shaped  it  out  of  cloud  and  clay, 


A   TALE    OF    VILLAFRANCA. 

lie  touched  it  finely  till  the  seed 
Possessed  the  flower  :  from  heart  and  brain 
He  fed  it  with  large  thoughts  humane, 

To  help  a  people's  need. 


in. 


He  brought  it  out  into  the  sun — 
They  blessed  it  to  his  face  : 

'  0  great  pure  Deed,  that  hast  undone 
So  many  bad  and  base  ! 

0  generous  Deed,  heroic  Deed, 

Come  forth,  be  perfected,  succeed, 
Deliver  by  God's  grace. 


IV 


Then  sovereigns,  statesmen,  north  and  south, 

Hose  up  in  wrath  and  fear, 
And  cried,  protesting  by  one  mouth, 

'  What  monster  have  we  here  ? 
A  great  Deed  at  this  hour  of  day  ? 
A  great  just  deed — and  not  for  pay  ? 

Absurd, — or  insincere.' 


28  A   TALE    OF    VILLAFRANCA. 


*  And  if  sincere,  the  heavier  blow 
In  that  case  we  shall  bear, 

For  where  *s  our  blessed  '  status  quo/ 
Our  holy  treaties,  where, — 

Our  rights  to  sell  a  race,  or  buy, 

Protect  and  pillage,  occupy, 
And  civilise  despair  ?  ' 


VI. 


Some  muttered  that  the  great  Deed  meant 

A  great  pretext  to  sin  ; 
And  others,  the  pretext,  so  lent, 

Was  heinous  (to  begin). 
Volcanic  terms  of  '  great '  and  '  just  ? ' 
Admit  such  tongues  of  flame,  the  crust 

Of  time  and  law  falls  in. 


VII. 


A  great  Deed  in  this  world  of  ours  ? 

Unheard  of  the  pretence  is  : 
It  threatens  plainly  the  great  Powers  ; 


A   TALE    OF    VILLAFBANCA.  29 

Is  fatal  in  all  senses. 
A  just  deed  in  the  world  ? — call  out 
The  rifles  !  be  not  slack  about 

The  national  defences. 


VIII. 


And  many  murmured,  '  From  this  source 
What  red  blood  must  be  poured ! ' 

And  some  rejoined,  '  ?Tis  even  worse  ; 
What  red  tape  is  ignored  ! ' 

All  cursed  the  Doer  for  an  evil 

Called  here,  enlarging  on  the  Devil, — 
There,  monkeying  the  Lord  ! 


IX. 


Some  said,  it  could  not  be  explained, 

Some,  could  not  be  excused ; 
And  others,  '  Leave  it  unrestrained, 

Gehenna's  self  is  loosed/ 
And  all  cried,  '  Crush  it,  maim  it,  gag  it ! 
Set  dog-toothed  lies  to  tear  it  ragged, 

Truncated  and  traduced ! ' 


30  A   TALE    OF    VILLAFRANCA. 


But  He  stood  sad  before  the  sun, 
(The  peoples  felt  their  fate). 

'  The  world  is  many, — I  am  one  ; 
My  great  Deed  was  too  great. 

God's  fruit  of  justice  ripens  slow  : 

Men's  souls  are  narrow  ;  let  them  grow 
My  brothers,  we  must  wait.' 


XI. 


The  tale  is  ended,  child  of  mine, 
Turned  graver  at  my  knee. 

They  say  your  eyes,  my  Florentine, 
Are  English  :  it  may  be  : 

And  yet  I  've  marked  as  blue  a  pair 

Following  the  doves  across  the  square 
At  Venice  by  the  sea. 


XII. 


Ah,  child  !  ah,  child  !  I  cannot  say 

A  word  more.     You  conceive 
The  reason  now,  why  just  to-day 


A    TALE    OF    VILLAFRANCA.  31 

We  see  our  Florence  grieve. 
Ah  child,  look  up  into  the  sky ! 
In  this  low  world,  where  great  Deeds  die, 

What  matter  if  we  live  ? 


32 


A  COURT  LADY. 


i. 


Her  hair  was  tawny  with  gold,  her  eyes  with  purple 

were  dark, 
Her  cheeks'  pale  opal  burnt  with  a  red  and  restless 

spark. 


ii. 


Never  was  lady  of  Milan  nobler  in  name  and  in  race  ; 
Never  was  lady  of  Italy  fairer  to  see  in  the  face. 


in. 


Never  was  lady  on  earth  more  true  as  woman  and 

wife, 
Larger  in  judgment  and  instinct,  prouder  in  manners 

and  life. 


A   COURT   LADY.  33 


IV. 


She   stood   in   tlie   early  morning,  and   said  to  her 

maidens,  'Bring 
That  silken  robe  made  ready  to  wear  at  the  court  of 

the  king. 


'  Bring  me  the  clasps  of  diamond,  lucid,  clear  of  the 
mote, 

Clasp  me  the  large  at  the  waist,  and  clasp  me  the 
small  at  the  throat. 


VI. 


1  Diamonds  to  fasten  the  hair,  and  diamonds  to  fasten 

the  sleeves, 
Laces  to  drop  from  their  rays,  like  a  powder  of  snow 

from  the  eaves. ' 


VII. 


Gorgeous  she  entered  the  sunlight  which  gathered  her 
up  in  a  flame, 

While,  straight  in  her  open  carriage,  she  to  the  hos- 
pital came. 


34  A    COURT   LADY. 


VIII. 


In  she  went  at  the  door,  and  gazing  from  end  to  end, 
'Many  and  low  are  the  pallets,  but  each  is  the  place  of 
a  friend.' 


IX. 


Up  she  passed  through  the  wards,  and  stood  at  a 

young  man's  bed : 
Bloody  the  band  on  his  brow,  and  livid  the  droop  of 

his  head. 


'  Art  thou  a  Lombard,  my  brother  ?   Happy  art  thou/ 

she  cried, 
And  smiled  like  Italy  on  him :  he  dreamed  in  her 

face  and  died. 


XI. 


Pale  with  his  passing  soul,  she  went  on  still  to  a 

second : 
He  was  a  grave  hard  man,  whose  years  by  dungeons 

were  reckoned. 


A    COURT   LADY.  35 


XII. 


Wounds  in  his  body  were  sore,  wounds  in  his  life  were 

sorer. 
'  Art  thou  a  Komagnole  ?  '    Her  eyes  drove  lightnings 

before  her. 


XIII. 


Austrian  and  priest  had  joined  to  double  and  tighten 

the  cord 
Able  to  bind  thee,  0  strong  one, — free  by  the  stroke 

of  a  sword. 


XIV. 


'  Now  be  grave  for  the  rest  of  us,  using  the  life  over- 
cast 

To  ripen  our  wine  of  the  present,  (too  new,)  in  glooms 
of  the  past/ 


XV. 


Down  she  stepped  to  a  pallet  where  lay  a  face  like 

a  girl's 
Young,  and  pathetic  with  dying,— a  deep  black  hole 

in  the  curls. 

d2 


36  A    COURT   LADY. 


XVI. 


'  Art  thou  from  Tuscany,  brother  ?    and  seest  thou, 

dreaming  in  pain, 
Thy  mother  stand  in  the  piazza,  searching  the  List  of 

the  slain  ? ' 


XVII. 


Kind  as  a  mother  herself,  she  touched  his  cheeks  with 

her  hands  : 
'  Blessed   is  she  who  has  borne  thee,   although  she 

should  weep  as  she  stands.' 


XVIII. 


On  she  passed  to  a  Frenchman,  his  arm  carried  off  by 

a  ball : 
Kneeling,  .  .  '  0  more  than  my  brother  !  how  shall  I 

thank  thee  for  all  ? 


XIX. 


'Each  of  the  heroes  around  us  has  fought  for  his 

land  and  line, 
But  thou  hast  fought  for  a  stranger,  in  hate  of  a  wrong 

not  thine. 


A    COURT    LADY.  37 


XX. 


'  Happy  are  all  free  peoples,  too  strong  to  be  dispos- 
sessed. 

But  blessed  are  those  among  nations,  who  dare  to 
be  strong  for  the  rest ! ' 


XXI. 


Ever  she  passed  on  her  way,  and  came  to  a  couch 

where  pined 
One  with  a  face  from  Venetia,  white  with  a  hope  out 

of  mind. 

XXIL 

Long  she  stood  and  gazed,  and  twice  she  tried  at  the 

name, 
But  two  great  crystal  tears  were  all  that  faltered  and 

came. 

XXIII. 

Only  a  tear  for  Venice  ? — she  turned  as  in  passion 

and  loss, 
And  stooped  to  his  forehead  and  kissed  it,  as  if  she 

were  kissing  the  cross. 


38  A   COURT   LADY. 


XXIV. 


Faint  with  that  strain  of  heart  she  moved  on  then  to 

another, 
Stern  and  strong  in  his  death.    'And  dost  thou  suffer, 

my  brother  ? ' 


XXV. 


Holding  his  hands  in  hers  : — '  Out  of  the  Piedmont 

lion 
Cometh  the  sweetness  of  freedom !    sweetest  to  live 

or  to  die  on.' 


XXVI. 


Holding  his  cold  rough  hands, — '  Well,  oh,  well  have 

ye  done 
In  noble,  noble  Piedmont,  who  would  not  be  noble 

alone.' 


XXVII. 


Back  he  fell  while  she  spoke.     She  rose  to  her  feet 

with  a  spring, — 
'  That  was  a  Piedmontese !  and  this  is  the  Court  of 


the  King.' 


39 


AN  AUGUST  VOICE. 


"  Una  voce  augusta." — 

MONITORE  TOSCAKO. 


You'll  take  back  vour  Grand  Duke  ? 

I  made  the  treaty  upon  it. 
Just  venture  a  quiet  rebuke  ; 

DalT  Ongaro  write  him  a  sonnet ; 
Bicasoli  gently  explain 

Some  need  of  the  constitution  : 
He'll  swear  to  it  over  again, 

Providing  an  '  easy  solution.' 
You'll  call  back  the  Grand  Duke. 


ii. 


You'll  take  back  your  Grand  Duke  ? 

I  promised  the  Emperor  Francis 
To  argue  the  case  by  his  book, 

And  ask  you  to  meet  his  advances. 


40     .  AN   AUGUST   VOICE. 

The  Ducal  cause,  we  know, 

(Whether  you  or  lie  be  the  wronger) 
Has  very  strong  points  ; — although 

Your  bayonets,  there,  have  stronger. 
You'll  call  back  the  Grand  Duke. 


in. 


You'll  take  back  your  Grand  Duke  ? 

He  is  not  pure  altogether. 
For  instance,  the  oath  which  he  took 

(In  the  Forty- eight  rough  weather) 
He'd  '  nail  your  flag  to  his  mast/ 

Then  softly  scuttled  the  boat  you 
Hoped  to  escape  in  at  last, 

And  both  by  a  '  Proprio  motu.' 
You'll  call  back  the  Grand  Duke. 


IV. 


You'll  take  back  your  Grand  Duke  ? 

The  scheme  meets  nothing  to  shock  it 
In  this  smart  letter,  look, 

We  found  in  Radetsky's  pocket ; 


AN    AUGUST   VOICE.  41 

Where  his  Highness  in  sprightly  style 
Of  the  flower  of  his  Tuscans  wrote, 

'  These  heads  be  the  hottest  in  file  ; 
Pray  shoot  them  the  quickest/     Quote, 

And  call  back  the  Grand  Duke. 


V. 


You'll  take  back  your  Grand  Duke  ? 

There  are  some  things  to  object  to. 
He  cheated,  betrayed,  and  forsook, 

Then  called  in  the  foe  to  protect  you. 
He  taxed  you  for  wines  and  for  meats 

Throughout  that  eight  years'  pastime 
Of  Austria's  drum  in  your  streets — 

Of  course  you  remember  the  last  time 
You  called  back  your  Grand  Duke. 


VI. 


You'll  take  back  the  Grand  Duke  ? 

It  is  not  race  he  is  poor  in, 
Although  he  never  could  brook 

The  patriot  cousin  at  Turin. 


42      .  AN   AUGUST   VOICE. 

His  love  of  kin  you  discern, 

By  his  hate  of  your  flag  and  me — 

So  decidedly  apt  to  turn 

All  colours  at  sight  of  the  Three.* 

You'll  call  back  the  Grand  Duke. 

VII. 

You'll  take  back  your  Grand  Duke  ? 

'Twas  weak  that  he  fled  from  the  Pitti ; 
But  consider  how  little  he  shook 

At  thought  of  bombarding  your  city  ! 
And,  balancing  that  with  this, 

The  Christian  rule  is  plain  for  us  ; 
.  .  Or  the  Holy  Father's  Swiss 

Have  shot  his  Perugians  in  vain  for  us. 
You'll  call  back  the  Grand  Duke. 

VIII. 

Pray  take  back  your  Grand  Duke. 

— I,  too,  have  suffered  persuasion. 
All  Europe,  raven  and  rook, 

Screeched  at  me  armed  for  your  nation. 

*  The  Italian  tricolor  :  red,  green,  and  white. 


AN   AUGUST   VOICE.  43 

Your  cause  in  my  heart  struck  spurs  ; 

I  swept  such  warnings  aside  for  you : 
My  very  child's  eyes,  and  Hers, 

Grew  like  my  brother's  who  died  for  you. 
You'll  call  back  the  Grand  Duke  ? 


IX. 


You'll  take  back  your  Grand  Duke  ? 

My  French  fought  nobly  with  reason, 
Left  many  a  Lombardy  nook 

Red  as  with  wine  out  of  season. 
Little  we  grudged  what  was  done  there, 

Paid  freely  your  ransom  of  blood  : 
Our  heroes  stark  in  the  sun  there, 

We  would  not  recall  if  we  could. 
You'll  call  back  the  Grand  Duke  ? 


You'll  take  back  your  Grand  Duke  ? 

His  son  rode  fast  as  he  got  off 
That  day  on  the  enemy's  hook, 

When  I  had  an  epaulette  shot  off. 


44  AN   AUGUST    VOICE. 

Though  splashed  (as  I  saw  him  afar,  no, 

Near)  by  those  ghastly  rains, 
The  mark,  when  you've  washed  him  in  Arno, 

Will  scarcely  he  larger  than  Cain's. 
You'll  call  hack  the  Grand  Duke. 


xr. 


You'll  take  hack  your  Grand  Duke  ? 

'Twill  he  so  simple,  quite  beautiful : 
The  shepherd  recovers  his  crook, 

.  .  If  you  should  be  sheep,  and  dutiful. 
I  spoke  a  word  worth  chalking 

On  Milan's  wall — but  stav, 
Here's  Poniatowsky  talking, — 

You'll  listen  to  him  to-day, 
And  call  back  the  Grand  Duke. 


XII. 


You'll  take  back  your  Grand  Duke  ? 

Observe,  there's  no  one  to  force  it,- 
Unless  the  Madonna,  St.  Luke 

Drew  for  you,  choose  to  endorse  it. 


AN    AUGUST    VOICE.  45 

i"  charge  you  by  great  St.  Martino 
And  prodigies  quickened  by  wrong, 

Remember  your  Dead  on  Ticino  ; 
Be  worthy,  be  constant,  be  strong. 

— Bah  ! — call  back  the  Grand  Duke  !  !

The  Pope  on  Christmas  Day 

Sits  in  St.  Peter's  chair ; 
But  the  peoples  murmur  and  say,

And  who  will  show  us  where 

Is  the  stable  where  Christ  was  born  ? '

The  manger  is  lost  in  the  straw  ; 
The  Christ  cries  faintly  .  .  hark !  .  . 

Through  bands  that  swaddle  and  strangle- 
But  the  Pope  in  the  chair  of  awe 

Looks  down  the  great  quadrangle.

The  magi  kneel  at  his  foot, 

Kings  of  the  east  and  west, 
But,  instead  of  the  angels,  (mute 

Is  the  ' Peace  on  earth'  of  their  song), 
The  peoples,  perplexed  and  opprest, 

Are  sighing,  '  How  long,  how  long  ? '

And,  instead  of  the  kine,  bewilder  in 
Shadow  of  aisle  and  dome, 

The  bear  who  tore  up  the  children, 
The  fox  who  burnt  up  the  corn, 

And  the  wolf  who  suckled  at  Rome 
Brothers  to  slay  and  to  scorn. 


v. 


Cardinals  left  and  right  of  him, 
Worshippers  round  and  beneath, 

The  silver  trumpets  at  sight  of  him 
Thrill  with  a  musical  blast : 

But  the  people  say  through  their  teeth, 
'  Trumpets  ?  we  wait  for  the  Last !  '

He  sits  in  the  place  of  the  Lord, 
And  asks  for  the  gifts  of  the  time ; 

Gold,  for  the  haft  of  a  sword, 
To  win  back  Romagna  averse, 

Incense,  to  sweeten  a  crime, 
And  myrrh,  to  embitter  a  curse. 


VII. 


Then  a  king  of  the  west  said,  '  Good  ! — 
I  bring  thee  the  gifts  of  the  time  ; 

Red,  for  the  patriot's  blood, 
Green,  for  the  martyr's  crown, 

White,  for  the  dew  and  the  rime, 

When  the  morning  of  God  comes  down.' 


VIII. 


— 0  mystic  tricolor  bright ! 

The  Pope's  heart  qnailed  like  a  man's 
The  cardinals  froze  at  the  sight, 

Bowing  their  tonsures  hoary  : 
And  the  eyes  in  the  peacock -fans 

Winked  at  the  alien  glory.

But  the  peoples  exclaimed  in  hope, 
*  Now  hlessed  he  he  who  has  "brought 

These  gifts  of  the  time  to  the  Pope, 
When  our  souls  were  sick  and  forlorn. 

— And  here  is  the  star  we  sought, 
To  show  us  where  Christ  was  born  ! '

i. 


Florence,  Bologna,  Parma,  Modena. 

When  you  named  them  a  year  ago, 
So  many  graves  reserved  hy  God,  in  a 

Day  of  judgment,  you  seemed  to  know, 
To  open  and  let  out  the  resurrection. 


ii. 


And  meantime  (you  made  your  reflection 
If  you  were  English),  was  nought  to  be  done 

But  sorting  sables,  in  predilection 
For  all  those  martyrs  dead  and  gone, 

Till  the  new  earth  and  heaven  made  ready.

And  if  your  politics  were  not  heady, 
Violent,  .  .  '  Good/  you  added,  '  good

In  all  tilings !  mourn  on  sure  and  steady. 
Churchyard  thistles  are  wholesome  food 
For  our  European  wandering  asses. 

IV. 

'  The  date  of  the  resurrection  passes 
Human  fore -knowledge  :  men  unborn 

Will  gain  by  it  (even  in  the  lower  classes), 
But  none  of  these.     It  is  not  the  morn 

Because  the  cock  of  France  is  crowing. 


'  Cocks  crow  at  midnight,  seldom  knowing 
Starlight  from  dawn-light :  'tis  a  mad 

Poor  creature.'     Here  you  paused,  and  growing 
Scornful,  .  .  suddenly,  let  us  add, 

The  trumpet  sounded,  the  graves  were  open.

Life  and  life  and  life  !  agrope  in 

The  dusk  of  death,  warm  hands,  stretched  out 
For  swords,  proved  more  life  still  to  hope  in, 

Beyond  and  behind,     Arise  with  a  shout, 
Nation  of  Italy,  slain  and  buried  !

52  ITALY    AND   THE    WORLD. 


VII. 


Hill  to  hill  and  turret  to  turret 

Flashing  the  tricolor, — newly  created 

Beautiful  Italy,  calm,  unhurried, 
Rise  heroic  and  renovated, 

Rise  to  the  final  restitution. 


VIII. 


Rise ;  prefigure  the  grand  solution 
Of  earth's  municipal,  insular  schisms,- 

Statesmen  draping  self-love's  conclusion 
In  cheap,  vernacular  patriotisms, 

Unable  to  give  up  Juda3a  for  Jesus. 


IX. 


Bring  us  the  higher  example  ;  release  us 
Into  the  larger  coming  time  : 

And  into  Christ's  broad  garment  piece  us 
Rags  of  virtue  as  poor  as  crime, 

National  selfishness,  civic  vaunting.

One  flag  only,  to  mark  the  advance,

For  civilisation  perfected 

Is  fully  developed  Christianity. 
'  Measure  the  frontier/  shall  it  be  said, 

'  Count  the  ships/  in  national  vanity  ? 
— Count  the  nation's  heart-beats  sooner. 

XII. 

For,  though  behind  by  a  cannon  or  schooner, 

That  nation  still  is  predominant, 
Whose  pulse  beats  quickest  in  zeal  to  oppugn  or 

Succour  another,  in  wrong  or  want, 
Passing  the  frontier  in  love  and  abhorrence.

Your  Michel  Angelo's  giant  Day, 
With  the  grandeur  of  this  Day  breaking  o'er  us  !

Ye  who,  restrained  as  an  ancient  chorus, 
Mute  while  the  coryphseus  spake, 

Hush  your  separate  voices  before  us, 
Sink  your  separate  lives  for  the  sake 

Of  one  sole  Italy's  living  for  ever  !

Givers  of  coat  and  cloak  too, — never 

Grudging  that  purple  of  yours  at  the  best,- 

By  your  heroic  will  and  endeavour 
Each  sublimely  dispossessed, 

That  all  may  inherit  what  each  surrenders !

Earth  shall  bless  you,  0  noble  emenders 
On  egotist  nations  !     Ye  shall  lead 

The  plough  of  the  world,  and  sow  new  splendours 
Into  the  furrow  of  things,  for  seed, — 

Ever  the  richer  for  what  ye  have  given.

Grow  larger  around  us  and  higher  above.

Our  sacrament-bread  has  a  bitter  leaven  ; 

"We  bait  our  traps  with,  the  name  of  love, 
Till  hate  itself  has  a  kinder  meaning. 

XVIIL 

Oh,  this  world :  this  cheating  and  screening 
Of  cheats  !  this  conscience  for  candle-wicks, 

Not  beacon-fires  !  this  over- weening 
Of  under-hand  diplomatical  tricks, 

Dared  for  the  country  while  scorned  for  the  counter  ! 

XIX. 

Oh,  this  envy  of  those  who  mount  here, 
And  oh,  this  malice  to  make  them  trip  ! 

Rather  quenching  the  fire  there,  drying  the  fount  here, 
To  frozen  body  and  thirsty  lip, 

Than  leave  to  a  neighbour  their  ministration.

I  cry  aloud  in  my  poet-passion, 

Viewing  my  England  o'er  Alp  and  sea. 

I  loved  her  more  in  her  ancient  fashion : 
She  carries  her  rifles  too  thick  for  me, 

Who  spares  them  so  in  the  cause  of  a  brother.

Suspicion,  panic  ?  end  this  pother. 

The  sword,  kept  sheathless  at  peace-time,  rusts. 
None  fears  for  himself  while  he  feels  for  another  : 

The  brave  man  either  fights  or  trusts, 
And  wears  no  mail  in  his  private  chamber. 


XXII. 


Beautiful  Italy  !  golden  amber 

Warm  with  the  kisses  of  lover  and  traitor  ! 
Thou  who  hast  drawn  us  on  to  remember, 

Draw  us  to  hope  now  :  let  us  be  greater 
By  this  new  future  than  that  old  story. 


XXIII. 


Till  truer  glory  replaces  all  glory, 

As  the  torch  grows  blind  at  the  dawn  of  day; 
And  the  nations,  rising  up,  their  sorry 

And  foolish  sins  shall  put  away, 
As  children  their  toys  when  the  teacher  enters. 

XXIV. 

Till  Love's  one  centre  devour  these  centres 
Of  many  self-loves  ;  and  the  patriot's  trick 


ITALY   AND   THE    WORLD.  57 

To  better  his  land  by  egotist  ventures, 

Defamed  from  a  virtue,  shall  make  men  sick, 
As  the  scalp  at  the  belt  of  some  red  hero. 

XXV. 

For  certain  virtues  have  dropped  to  zero, 

Left  by  the  sun  on  the  mountain's  dewy  side  ; 

Churchman's  charities,  tender  as  Nero, 
Indian  suttee,  heathen  suicide, 

Service  to  rights  divine,  proved  hollow  : 

XXVI. 

And  Heptarchy  patriotisms  must  follow. 

— National  voices,  distinct  yet  dependent, 
Ensphering  each  other,  as  swallow  does  swallow, 

With  circles  still  widening  and  ever  ascendant, 
In  multiform  life  to  united  progression, — 

XXVII. 

These  shall  remain.     And  when,  in  the  session 
Of  nations,  the  separate  language  is  heard, 

Each  shall  aspire,  in  sublime  indiscretion, 
To  help  with  a  thought  or  exalt  with  a  word 

Less  her  own  than  her  rival's  honor. 


58  ITALY   AND   THE    WORLD. 


XXVIII. 


Each  Christian  nation  shall  take  upon  her 
The  law  of  the  Christian  man  in  vast : 

The  crown  of  the  getter  shall  fall  to  the  donor, 
And  last  shall  be  first  while  first  shall  be  last, 

And  to  love  best  shall  still  be,  to  reign  unsurpassed.

A  CURSE  FOE  A  NATION. 


PROLOGUE. 

I  heard  an  angel  speak  last  night, 

And  he  said,  '  Write  ! 
Write  a  Nation's  curse  for  me, 
And  send  it  over  the  Western  Sea/ 

I  faltered,  taking  up  the  word : 

'  Not  so,  my  lord ! 
If  curses  must  be,  choose  another 
To  send  thy  curse  against  my  brother. 

'  For  I  am  bound  by  gratitude, 

By  love  and  blood, 
To  brothers  of  mine  across  the  sea, 
Who  stretch  out  kindly  hands  to  me.' 


60  A    CURSE    FOR   A    NATION. 

'Therefore/  the  voice  said,  'shalt  thou  write 

My  curse  to-night. 
From  the  summits  of  love  a  curse  is  driven, 
As  lightning  is  from  the  tops  of  heaven.' 

'  Not  so/  I  answered.     '  Evermore 

My  heart  is  sore 
For  my  own  land's  sins  :  for  little  feet 
Of  children  bleeding  along  the  street : 

'  For  parked- up  honors  that  gainsay 

The  right  of  way  : 
For  almsgiving  through  a  door  that  is 
Not  open  enough  for  two  friends  to  kiss : 

'  For  love  of  freedom  which  abates 

Beyond  the  Straits  : 
For  patriot  virtue  starved  to  vice  on 
Self-praise,  self-interest,  and  suspicion  : 

'  For  an  oligarchic  parliament, 
And  bribes  well-meant. 
What  curse  to  another  land  assign, 
When  heavy- souled  for  the  sins  of  mine  ?  ' 


A    CURSE    FOR   A   NATION.  6] 

'  Therefore/  the  voice  said,  '  shalt  thou  write 

My  curse  to-night. 
Because  thou  hast  strength  to  see  and  hate 
A  foul  thing  done  within  thy  gate/ 

'Not  so/  I  answered  once  again. 

'  To  curse,  choose  men. 
For  I,  a  woman,  have  only  known 
How  the  heart  melts  and  the  tears  run  down.' 

'  Therefore/  the  voice  said,  '  shalt  thou  write 

My  curse  to-night. 
Some  women  weep  and  curse,  I  say, 
(And  no  one  marvels,)  night  and  day. 

'  And  thou  shalt  take  their  part  to-night, 

Weep  and  write. 
A  curse  from  the  depths  of  womanhood 
Is  very  salt,  and  bitter,  and  good/ 

So  thus  I  wrote,  and  mourned  indeed, 

What  all  may  read. 
And  thus,  as  was  enjoined  on  me, 
I  send  it  over  the  Western  Sea. 


62  A   CURSE    FOR   A   NATION. 


THE   CURSE. 


Because  ye  have  broken  your  own  chain 

"With  the  strain 
Of  brave  men  climbing  a  Nation's  height, 
Yet  thence  bear  down  with  brand  and  thong 
On  souls  of  others, — for  this  wrong 

This  is  the  curse.     Write. 

Because  yourselves  are  standing  straight 

In  the  state 
Of  Freedom's  foremost  acolyte, 
Yet  keep  calm  footing  all  the  time 
On  writhing  bond-slaves, — for  this  crime 

This  is  the  curse.     Write. 

Because  ye  prosper  in  God's  name, 

With  a  claim 
To  honor  in  the  old  world's  sight, 
Yet  do  the  fiend's  work  perfectly 
In  strangling  martyrs, — for  this  lie 

This  is  the  curse.     Write. 


A   CURSE    FOR   A    NATION.  63 


II. 


Ye  shall  watch  while  kings  conspire 
Round  the  people's  smouldering  fire, 

And,  warm  for  your  part, 
Shall  never  dare — 0  shame  ! 
To  utter  the  thought  into  flame 

Which  burns  at  your  heart. 
This  is  the  curse.     Write. 

Ye  shall  watch  while  nations  strive 
With  the  bloodhounds,  die  or  survive, 

Drop  faint  from  their  jaws, 
Or  throttle  them  backward  to  death, 
And  only  under  your  breath 

Shall  favor  the  cause. 

This  is  the  curse.     Write. 

Ye  shall  watch  while  strong  men  draw 
The  nets  of  feudal  law 

To  strangle  the  weak, 
And,  counting  the  sin  for  a  sin, 
Your  soul  shall  be  sadder  within 

Than  the  word  ye  shall  speak. 
This  is  the  curse.     Write. 


64  A   CURSE    FOR   A   NATION. 

When  good  men  are  praying  erect 
That  Christ  may  avenge  his  elect 

And  deliver  the  earth, 
The  prayer  in  your  ears,  said  low, 
Shall  sound  like  the  tramp  of  a  foe 

That's  driving  you  forth. 

This  is  the  curse.     Write. 


When  wise  men  give  you  their  praise, 
They  shall  pause  in  the  heat  of  the  phrase, 

As  if  carried  too  far. 
When  ye  hoast  your  own  charters  kept  true, 
Ye  shall  hlush  ; — for  the  thing  which  ye  do 

Derides  what  ye  are. 

This  is  the  curse.'     Write. 


When  fools  cast  taunts  at  your  gate, 
Your  scorn  ye  shall  somewhat  ahate 

As  ye  look  o'er  the  wall, 
For  your  conscience,  tradition,  and  name 
Explode  with  a  deadlier  blame 

Than  the  worst  of  them  all. 
This  is  the  curse.     Write. 


A   CURSE    FOR   A   NATION.  (J~ 

Go,  wherever  ill  deeds  shall  be  done, 
Go,  plant  your  flag  in  the  sun 

Beside  the  ill-doers ! 
And  recoil  from  clenching  the  curse 
Of  God's  witnessing  Universe 

With  a  curse  of  yours. 

This  is  the  curse.     Write.

By  ANTHONY  TROLLOPE, 

"Mr.  Trollope  manages  to  do  pleasantly  whatever  he  attempts,  but  his  real  object  in 
writing  the  present  work  is  a  serious  one,  and  we  have  to  thank  him  for  a  most  valuable

attention  is  turned  to  these  islands,  and  some  encouragement  is  afforded  to  our  planters, 
the  author  may  regard  his  book  of  travels  as  the  most  useful,  if  not  the  most  brilliant,

THE  MIND  OF  SHAKSPEARE,  AS  EXHIBITED 

IN    HIS    WORKS. 

By  the  Rev.  A.  A.  MORGAN. 

"  Among  the  various  works  in  connection  with  Shakspeare  that  have  from  time  to  time 
issued  from  the  press  to  satisfy  the  remarkable  revival  of  public  interest  recently  exhibited 
in  favour  of  this  cherished  writer,  we  have  to  notice  one  entitled,  '  The  Mind  of  Shak- 
speare, as  exhibited  in  his  Works.1 

"  Indeed,  it  is  not  too  much  to  say  that  in  the  present  volume  every  man  may  see 
himself,  not  only  as  he  is,  but  as  he  ought  to  be.  For  these,  and  other  reasons,  we  think 
it  might  be  made  to  bear  profitably  on  educational  purposes,  if  only  as  a  handbook  of  pure 
principles,  pure  poetry,  and  pure  diction.  Public  schools,  mechanics'  institutes,  and 
similar  societies,  would  find  it  a  valuable  didactic  manual ;  and,  for  general  readers,  it  is 
especially  calculated  to  imbue  them  with  the  essence  of  Shakspeare's  mind  and  medi- 
tations, and  to  attach  them  to  the  deeper  study  of  his  general  wisdom." — Times,  January  6.
